Chiara Corbella Petrillo - A Witness to Joy
By Simone Troisi and Cristiana Paccini. Imagine that your first child died an hour after birth. Imagine that your second child died thirty-eight minutes after birth. Now imagine that you deliver a healthy third child, but right after his birth, you undergo treatments for terminal cancer. This is a true story about the love of Chiara and Enrico Petrillo, a young couple who met in Medjugorje in the summer of 2002, and were married. It is a story of sacrifice, courage, and, most of all, absolute trust in God's plan for their lives. This is not a depressing story; rather, it is a story of hope and peace in Jesus Christ. It portrays the witness of joy one can have while carrying a very heavy cross. Where there is sorrow, God's grace flows abundantly. In Chiara's words, "We are made for Heaven; and also for friendship. It must not be forgotten." A truly inspiring book that you won't be able to put down.
